    Ok yesterday there was news about Corsair and theirs 4333MHz memory today is about G.Skill and theirs 4400MHz kit,who is next tomorrow?? We need to open some kind of gambling shop so we can place bets on speed of the RAM and the name of the company that is going to take crown :):):):) On the serious note this is becoming ludicrous soon they will overshoot even DDR5 speeds with DDR4

    "World's fastest...in the world."

    Well I guess, you know what I mean...

    does the "speed" make the much higher "timing" worth it? is this "speed" even noticablely?

    I dont want to hear about DDR5, i would like to make upgrade my system 2 more times using the DDR4 i have. short of the ram out right dying on me and i never had ram out right die on me.

    Short answer NO,long answer if you don't juggle a lot of data, meaning mostly databases you want notice the difference,and timings are not going to get better,you need to take in consideration distance between RAM and CPU,with these multi GHz speeds they don't have much room to lover timings unless they start putting multigiga ram on cpu ala HBM

    this particular kit is pretty tight, it would be faster than 3200 cl14, how much faster? maybe 2%-5% depending on the system, but ultimately kits like these while they can be used at the rated speed on specific platforms, are proabably better suited to being hand tuned at lower frequencies , you can probably do cl 13-cl12 @ 3200 with this highly binned ram with reasonable voltages, which will be a decent bit faster.

    ddr5 ain't coming anytime soon, would be after 2020, and even then it will be very expensive, unlikely to be mainstream for quite some time. on top of this, the amount of overlap will be much higher than with ddr3/ddr4, you can buy ddr3 3200mhz cl13 kits (if you sell a kidney )which would be as fast or faster than a decent ddr4 kit, the same will likely be true of ddr5, unless they end up hitting like 4500mhz with really low timings,there isn't going to be much of a difference performance wise.

    To anyone thinking bigger latency numbers means slower, the numbers are clock cycles not time, the timings compensate for higher clock frequencies to maintain stability of the DRAM.
    Put loosely, 1000MHz at 5-5-5-15 would have the same latency as 2000MHz at 10-10-10-30 but with a higher bandwidth.

    So when overclocking would it be a good idea to try to keep the latency/clockspeed ratio constant (as speed does seem to be more important than latency anyways)?

    G.Skill TridentZ F4-4266C19D-16GTZA on my current rig.

    Didn't touch subs or tertiary. Waiting for a bloody 8700K(Asrock Extreme 4) to really push this kit. ;)

    Depends on the application/platform, bandwidth heavy apps will benefit from the higher speeds(7zip for example), but if the bandwidth isn't saturated it may make no difference at all. And in other applications the latency will have more of an effect.

    in this case, you tend to see increasingly diminishing returns past 3200-3600mhz on both current intel and amd plaforms, in which case you're probably better off doing 3600mhz cl14 (like koniakk has done above) than 4000mhz + with highend kits
